End Cuba embargo now! U.S. out of Guantánamo!

More than ever solidarity with Cuba is important. Cuba and the United States established diplomatic relations in 2015 but since 1960 the U.S. government has maintained an embargo against Cuba, since 1903 occupies Cuban territory in Guantánamo, and still has policies aimed at ‘regime change’ to Cuba’s socialist revolution.

Phil Brown, Wyatt Nelson, and Taylor Thornburg will speak on a panel to explain why they are making their first trip to Cuba and what their action plans might be when they return. Last year more than 200 people from 34 countries participated in the Brigade, which is sponsored by the Cuban Institute for Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP). This is the first time a U.S. contingent will be on the brigade, at least 50 have signed up so far.
